I am a thinker. I have an analytical mind and I love to figure everything out.
And as I’ve come to understand the power and underutilized intelligence of the heart, I’ve started to learn how to do a better job at listening to my heart instead of my mind.
Before I get to the research, let me clarify this a bit.
You may have...
Well.... are you?
Well, consider yourself caught!
Odds are your phone is creating a gap between you and your loved ones. But as long as it doesn't get as bad as in this...
If you take a look at what's in the media today… you’ve probably already noticed that the majority of the news and articles focus on two things; money and beauty . And usually, the headlines are somehow insinuating that more of either or more both of those things is what we should be striving for…
We glorify the richest people, the most profitable companies, the countries with the highest GDP, and the most powerful stocks . Women should focus on reducing wrinkles, losing...
You know that going to the beach makes you feel good... but why??
Blue Mind: A mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment. - Wallace J. Nichols, PHD
As I sit here writing this, I’m staring at the bright turquoise blue ocean in Hawaii . The waves are perfect. They take a long time to crash - gently rolling in from a few hundred yards out. The surfers are all grouped together out there in the...
If you opted-in to the Free Video Series, you remember that I mentioned there are 5 Areas of Life you must master. One of them is your Financial Wellbeing.
So the first thing I have to make very clear that Financial Wellbeing isn’t about how to design your budget properly, be a good investor, or how to make a lot of money…. because if you look around, there are plenty of people who do all of those things very well and they are NOT necessarily any happier for it.
There’s a book I’ve read and love by John Izzo called The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die - not to be confused with the book, The Top 5 Regrets of the Dying by Bronnie Ware.
John started by asking 15,000 people across the US and Canada to send him their recommendations on who they felt were the “wise elders” in their life - people who had something important to teach us.
Of almost 1000 names that were suggested, he identified 235 people who...
Everyone knows the basics in terms of how to get healthy - eat better and exercise more. But usually just knowing that doesn’t really make a difference.
It's easier said than done right?
In order to truly hack your physical health and wellbeing, you’ve got to know a bit about behavioral science. In other words, understanding human behavior, how we operate, how we think and feel - enables us to basically “trick” ourselves or our minds into doing the things we want.
Happiness? Wellbeing? Wellness? What’s the difference?
Well, there’s a reason why this site is called the “Wellbeing” hacker.
There’s a ton of information out there that uses all of these terms, but it’s important to know the difference… and why hacking your wellbeing is the way to go.
So, first, about happiness.
This is a sticky one because who doesn’t like to talk about happiness right?
So let me shed some light on why you actually should...
With all of this buzz about finding our “purpose”, there’s one thing that’s been missing from the conversation that is very important.
There are 3 levels of work - a job, a career, or your purpose. Let’s first distinguish between the 3 before we move on.
A job is something you do out of necessity. It is purely a means to an end. You show up just for the paycheck, and for the most part, you look forward to the day coming...
As of 2011, the #1 item on kids' Christmas lists was.... The iPad.
So, it goes without saying that we might need a bit of a wake-up call in terms of how to spend our money. We don’t have a clear understanding of how to truly use money as a tool to enhance our quality of life. Too often, we have been led to believe that more money is the end goal - but it’s really only a means to an end. And luckily, there’s now a ton of science to prove it.
